My favourite Wizard from Thundarr the Barbarian is, bar none, Mindok the Mind Menace from the ep of the same name. Watch it now:
Go ahead, I’ll wait.
OK so I’ve wanted a fig of Mindok for a good long while. I despaired of ever having one but then I discovered this guy:
It’s a SuperFigs mini called The Head. (It also comes with a Hitler head, obviously.)
That gave me the perfect — well, good enough for Rock and Roll anyway — body.
I then searched around for the helmet and found this Reaper fig:
It’s their Chronoscope astronaut, Duke Jones. (I’ll also repurpose his head, for one of my Smokers.)
Both pieces involved some pretty serious cutting and filing and, on the helmet, some filling and building. He’s not perfect but I’m happy with how he turned out.
He’s going to be a great villain for Mutant Future Thundarr (scroll down a bit; the download link is on the right hand side).
P.S.: I’ll post again once he’s painted.
